The Role of the Chief Human Resources Officer in the Boardroom
Anneke Zwart, Student (University), Netherlands, Premium Member
A Corporate HR Officer (CHRO) used to be relatively unimportant in terms of influencing decision-making compared to other C-suite functions ( such as the , , , , , and ), mainly focusing on administrative tasks as establishing compensation plans. Since the past decades, however, they have gained importance: often they are reporting directly to the CEO and as such they can be said to be one of the CEOs key advisors. Their growing importance has resulted in a change in the requirements for new CHROs. A high level of leadership skills and strategy implementation skills are nowadays required. Filler and Ulrich researched the role of the CHRO within the C-suite and report some surprising observations.
  1. RELATIVELY HIGH SALARIES: while the CEO and the COO naturally remain the jobs with the first and second-highest salary respectively, CHROs took the third place. According to Ulrich, these high salaries are needed because great CHROs are difficult to find.
